HE Class of 1900 give you greeting in their "AUerlei." Its task is done; its brave 
new book is finished ; and now the class entrusts to a friendly and let us hope a 
not too severely critical public this evidence of its industry and record of its Junior 
year. The Allerlei is sent out with no apology for its being or for its faults. 
If there be excellencies, they will prove self-evident; if faults, no apology will hide them. 

The book must stand or fall by its own merit or lack of this. Of one thing the class is 
sure — the alumnae, the old girls, and all friends of Lasell welcome the Allerlei, and find it inter- 
esting, and will remember that its editors and contributors have not had the advantages of having 
fifty years of book-making experience at their back, but have brought to their work instead a 
band of girls not yet through school ; and hence will not expect of them a perfection beyond their 
abilities. To these especially as well as to the public generally we commend our book. 

In the preparation of it we have found together with the usual vexations attending such 
work, many hours of real pleasure, so that we feel half sorry that it is over and done with. We 
have tried to make it a faithful, even if only a partial reflex of the life and doings of Lasell 
this year, and if its outside readers find in it a pleasant diversion for an idle hour, and our own 
girls feel that in it they have a valued memento of their schooldays here, the wish of the class 
regarding the Allerlei will be sufficiently realized.

lOU have already been told that sixteen hundred and sixty-six was a very eventful 

year but you may not know that eighteen hundred and ninety-four was just as 

important. You do not know why ? Really, I beg pardon, but your education has 

been sadly neglected — along certain lines at least. 

In the fall of eighteen hundred and ninety-four the great class of Ninety-nine came into 

existence. In September of that memorable year there entered the portals of Lasell Seminary 

three or four little girls, new students and the advance guard of the great class just mentioned, 

the class which has since become the bulwark and defense of this famous school. I am afraid 

they were not considered especially important at that time but from year to year their numbers 

have increased until now the class of Ninety-nine is acknowledged to be the greatest class of all 

Lasell's "Have Been's" and confidently believed to be immeasurably superior to all its "To Be's.'' 

I shall pass over the events of its childhood and youth, and tell you of the great Senior 

year, for which all the preceding years have been but a preparation. When our awe-inspiring 

president tapped on the table to call our first Senior meeting to order, one glance at the thirty 

dignified girls there assembled told that they were destined to achieve success and renown. The 

die was cast ; Ninety-nine was to win distinction. 

On Hallow-e'en the class made its debut in the never-to-be-forgotten cake-walk, Such steps 

(i6) 



and such costumes ! The swellest darkies of Darkey-town would have turned green with envy 
had they seen the spectacle. 

Its next appearance was on a very different occasion — the event of events. At the end of the 
first term when its members had proved to all that they were worthy of these honored and honorable 
habiliments, they donned the sombre cap and gown. Who ever saw a more impressive scene 
than that of the time when they "floated" into evening chapel in all their flowing blackness. If 
there had ever been any doubt of their sublime sui^eriority to our dear schoolmates, it vanished 
that night. 

Commencement is coming, much to the sorrow of Ninety-nine, at which time will be made 
positively the last appearance of the famous " Ninety- niners." It is difhcult to conjecture what 
Lasell will do without this great class, but it is hoped that the Juniors upon whom the mantle of 
Seniorhood will then fall, will follow in the footsteps of " Ninety-nine " as far and as fast as 
they can.

Yh|e Qlass of JhlE QENiJay. 




HE history of the Class of the Century is so well-known to all of us that it seems 
hardly necessary to write it out; still, for the benefit of those who are unacquainted 
with it, and because our class annual would not be complete without the same, we 
will try to tell our achievements, though very briefly. 
We entered the walls of Lasell on a beautiful day in the fall of '96, and began our career as a 
class a few days later, when a few timid girls gathered in Room 2 for the purpose of electing our 
class ofificers. Our number was small that year, but, as everyone knows, "the choicest goods come 
ill the smallest packages," and we made up for our numerical lack by our fine mental endowments, 
and our faithful study. 

In our sophomore 5'ear we were joined by sundry newcomers, who although homesick at first, 
soon came to take a vital interest in the class, entering so heartily into our scheme to win renown as 
scholars and models of deportment, that we were soon known as an unusually studious and well- 
behaved class. This reputation was not by any means undeserved. In Trigonometry we especially 
excelled. Although it is true, that, in spite of Miss Packard's warning, we could not refrain from 
saying, occasionally, for brevity's sake, " Cologtan " and "log cos," instead of giving these things 
their longer and more ladylike names. 

During the early part of this year, some members of the class showed even an undue fondness 

(20) 



for gymnastics, which they practised in every recitation. How many times in the Nineteenth Cen- 
tury History Class did Miss Carpenter have to say to certain girls in the front row, " Please con- 
fine your gymnastics to the gymnasium," silencing thus for a moment the arms wildly waving in the 
air, in token that their owners knew, at least, an answer to that particular question. In Literature 
we learned to give quotations with great fluency and were so skilful in referring each to the proper 
author that we ceased to fear the possibility of a slip, and were accordingly much surprised one day 
to hear one of the class refer a quoted passage to Keat's " Ibid," for, as every one knows, this is one 
of Keat's unpublished poems, and is never taught in the schools. 

Many of us were in Miss Call's weekly class in Nerve Training, learning there so to concentrate 
our mind that next year our nerves will be as steady as Gibraltar, and that finally as Seniors we shall 
be able to stand on the platform on Class Night without a fear or a tremor. 

At the beginning of the year, believing that '■'■too much study is a weariness to the flesh," we 
formed ourselves into a basket ball team for the purpose of mixing some fun with our hard "grind- 
ing," and from that time on were phenomenally successful in our games with the other teams. 

Thus ran the rippling current of the history of 1900. Were it possible to forecast the future 
career of each of its members, it would be of surpassing interest to do so ; but as that is impossible, 
suffice it to say that all will doubtless be noble women, heartily living up to the class motto, "Vincet 
qui se vincet."

HE history of the class of 1901! What inkstand would prove equal to the demands of 

the faithful pen that should attempt fully to write such a narrative ? Only a glimpse 

of the achievements and accomplishments of this class can the historian give the 

readers of the Allerlei. Since its brilliant members conquered the difficulties of 

Parliamentary form when Freshmen, they have conducted their class meetings with as much 

skill and statesmanship as Speaker Reed himself. 

An unfortunate illness deprived the class at a critical time of its much honored pres- 
ident, who was obliged for this cause to take an undesired vacation. Now the class no longer 
numbered "sweet sixteen," but one less, and was thereafter in charge of its vice-president, who 
did her duty nobly. 

If it be indeed true that the intelligence of the questioner can be judged by the kind 
of questions asked, certainly none who have listened to the keen and suggestive questions of 
this class, in trigonometry and Latin for instance, can doubt its phenomenal brightness. Another 
proof of its intelligence is the remarkably close attention given in recitations, especially in trig- 
onometry — you could hear a (coupling) pin drop. 

The remarkable plays of the Sophomore basket ball team were so loudly applauded 
that the gymnasium rang again and again. As a result of their distinguished (?) success the 

(24) 



team will probably be appointed by the school to play in the future games with Wellesley, 
Smith and Vassar. 

This class possesses so very interesting a museum that it is considered quite the thing 
to become acquainted with its treasures, which are of no ordinary sort. There is for example, 
a young woman with " too much soul," a lady Barber, a Fisher maiden (Avho can hold her 
tongue till she gets a bite), one of the Fords of the River of Knowledge, and a very 
intricate Lock of cunning workmanship, to which a Special holds the key. 

The class has chosen for its motto, " Non nobis Solum," and hopes some day to prove 
to the world that its members have really made this the rule of their lives.

Yh|E [-jlSTORy or 1^02. 




HE class of 1902 has been requested by the illustrious Board of the Allerlei to write 
its history. Although the class fully appreciates the truth of the old proverbs, " chil- 
dren should be seen, not heard," and the like; yet it can not refuse the honor thus 
thrust upon it by the Juniors. 
The class not willing to prove an exception to the rule, " all great things must have their begin- 
nings," followed age-long precedent in initiating its sublunary existence by the usual organization, 
nomination and election of its officers, and the choice of the class flower, motto and color, all of 
which important matters were decided satisfactorily to everyone, after due discussion. 

The members of this honorable class have s'tarted on their four years' work with true Lasell 
courage, and if the teachers were fully to speak their minds regarding '02, they would doubtless say, 
it has been an ideal Freshman class. Have they refrained from this because they are afraid lest by 
their compliments should lead the class to become self-conceited ? Low foundationless reason ! 
Who ever heard of a Freshman being conceited ? 

In French we so excel that the teachers at times has allowed one of the class to turn instructor 
and question the rest. The only drawback to this diversion has been that after they were through, 
we have had to appeal to Mile. R. to know what they had been questioning us about. She has always 
been able to guess successfully what they were trying to say, which increases our admiration of her 

(28) 



superior intelligence. Hoiv superior you could understand only if you had heard those French (?) 
questions. 

In geometry we have learned the falsity of the old saying, " Seeing is believing," and the truth 
of the revised version of it, " Proving is believing." Our Slough of Despond, being only a comfort- 
able little Marsh, did not long hold us, but only nerved us to greater efforts, which in the end 
prevailed. 

This class not being composed of boasters, will surely not be considered as a band of braggarts, 
when with fond pride it calls the attention of the world to the fact that it has among its members a 
Mann^ a distinction enjoyed by not one of its sister classes. Not even the Seniors number one of the 
chivalrous sex as a true member of their class " in full and regular standing," but must needs borrow 
one as " honorary member " when occasion seems to demand this. 

The class of '02 is further noteworthy for an especial fondness for music. The sweetness of 
bird-notes is particularly soothing its ecu, wherefore it has cunningly lured the Robbins to stay at 
Lasell yearlong, and is always delighted to have Moore come. 

Being unassuming Freshmen, the members of this class prefer that their virtues be sung by 
others rather than themselves, and for the present will desist, choosing to wait until they have attained 
Seniorhood before further discussing the class merits. By that time, they hope that they will have 
established a good example for other classes to follow, and will have proved themselves an honor to 
Lasell,

|FTER a hard year's work, no resort better pleases a Lasell girl than Lake Genevieve in 

the White Hills, the most picturesque spot in New England. From the veranda of 

Carpenter Hall, that most admirable of hostelries, one sees far in the distance majestic 

snow-capped peaks rising into the blue, taking no thought for Raymond, yet more 

magnificently robed than the proudest monarch. Across the Marsh in the peaceful 

little valley just below, cows dot the meadows and Browse contentedly, or are driven home to the 

Milliken by Tommy. Off to the south troops of barefoot children wade across the Ford of the shallow 

Horstemeyer river, or some young Fisher angles for perch in a sheltered pool. 

Last summer to the ordinary attractions of this place was added that of a holiday romance, the 
Case being one of Brown vs. Cornell, for Bailey of the former college and EUwood of the latter, both 
made "a dead set" for the fair Evelyn of Smith. This aroused much interest among the other 
girls and the more wicked among them even made Betts upon the outcome. It was hard to tell 
which of these two Fellows was Moore in love with this charmer. Each played his Gam(e)well, 
although it was inevitable that at least one should fail. 

One sultry August morning after they had Eaton a light breakfast (the Carpenter Hall Cook is 
a master-hand to Fry eggs, and her Pinkham is the most delicious in the world), these three sallied 
forth for a Roe on the lake ; Evelyn, smartly attired in a dark skirt, pink Cotton shirt-waist and an 
entrancing sailor hat with a Cole-black ribbon, and her two escorts clad in white duck, immaculate, 
impressive. Evelyn was a good Walker and even on this August day could not dawdle, but set a 
brisk pace in the walk to the lake where they found their trim little boat ready for them. Quietly 
Dustin her natty little boots with her handkerchief, she stepped lightly into the boat, and when the 
two boys were ready, sweetly remarked, "Let her go, Gallagher"; whereupon they obeyed. The 
Hammond eggs must have impaited unusual strength to their muscles, for the boat shot through 
the water like an arrow. Gay banter and merry laughter beguiled the time, " Say Bailey," said 

(.68) 



Eliwood, "your Harris disarranged. Smootli her down a bit." This made Evelyn smile, a (Mc)Coy 
smile and a rougish one. 

Quick as a flash came the answer, " Your hair Risser in no better order, I 'm sure. The 
Thatcher who covered your roof did it so badly that every separate Harris at war with its neighbor. 
" Come boyth," lisped Evelyn, mockingly, " you Muth(t) not quarrel with each other, it ith n't nith, 
you know." Lunch was Eaton on a charming little promontory, near the north end of the lake, and 
at this time Bailey met with a mishap ; for attempting to secure some good drinking water from a 
spring not far oE, he sank into Meyer up to his ankles, and presented on his return a damaging con- 
trast to dapper Eliwood, still immaculate. The latter, too, was inclined to chaff. " What matters a 
Pooler or two," said he, " when one 's off on a lark ? Watson your shoes will brush off when it's dry ; 
though you do look just like a Porter in distress, that 's a fact." 

Bailey, thus Preston to retaliate, retorted, " A cavalier whose sole recommendation is that he 
keeps his clothes clean, is hardly of the sort most useful and most acceptable to a lady," — here he 
cast a glance at Evelyn, whose only token that she 'd heard was another (Mc)Coy smile. The water 
so hardly won was accepted, the feasting went on gaily, while the Robbins chirped overhead and one 
lugubrious old crow, evidently considering Iiimself the sole Wood-ward, cawed discontentedly in a 
pine near by. 

At the end, they all drank to America, when Eliwood, raising his glass of ginger-pop (it was 
Evelyn who had insisted upon the water) said, " Here 's to the Land, the Vreeland forever ! " 

Soon after this they started home. Long time they dallied about inlets and coves, drifting, 
rowing, stopping here and there, until twilight was upon them and the boat-house not yet in sight, 
"'Tis time we were Allen the house if we 're not to lose our suppers," said Bailey. " Come Eliwood, 
let 's make the boat-house in ten minutes," and they bent Mannfully to the oars, and would soon 
have reached the place, except that the two boys who, after all, were but 'Prentices at rowing, kept 
their eyes too much upon Evelyn, and failed to see that they were close upon a sunken rock. In 
another instant the boat grated harshly upon it, with a great gap in her side. 

It happened not far from shore, and the danger of the party was instantly seen by Captain 
Jenckes of the Horse Marines who with several of his men was just about pushing off for an evening 

(69) - 



sail. Coming quickly to the rescue they picked up Evelyn, who was swimming towards Bailey, then 
just going down (tlie boys alas! were poor swimmers), then rescued both Bailey and EUwood. The 
last named had almost perished, for a violent fit of Coffin had caused him to take into his lungs a 
considerable amount of water and it would have gone hard with him had not Jenckes reached him 
speedily. "Watts the matter with you young jackanapes, anyway," said the captain, half angrily, 
as they put back to the shore. " What business have you to take ladies out rowing, if you can't 
swim ? Great Scott ! You 'd better Crouch down I should think, you land-lubbers ! I 'm ashamed 
of you. The lady, now, she knows how to swim, lucky for you. Here he bestowed such a look of 
admiration upon Evelyn that she blushed rosy red, yet hastened to say, " Oh please Captain Jenckes, 
don't scold the boys. It was my fault that we came, I am sure." 

When the affair became generally known, it aroused much interest, an accident is so exciting 
you know, everyone said. Bailey was very seriously ill, afterwards, so much so that a noted physician 
from Boston came to Confer with Bailey's own doctor about the patient. He was very wise, and 
Kendall the situation in a very short time. Curtis the report they give of his verdict : " Better 
to-morrow, or die in a week." Poor Bailey, he grew better and ultimately recovered : but he lost 
fair Evelyn, for three months from that time she stood before the altar, in a shimmer of satin and 
pearls, with lovely bridesmaids to Waite upon her and a noble bridegroom to make to her the life- 
pledges of the wedding ceremony and that bridegroom was — EUwood .-* Well, no; I rather think 
'twas Captain Jenckes.

A pretty girl,

A jump, and now they 're going.

I do not like a Freshman 

For girl, — too fresh, is she; 
I care not for the Sophomore, 

Whose conceit is plain to see ; 
I cannot love the Senior, 

Tho' so near to her degree ; 
But I love the jolly Junior, — 

Yes, she 's the girl for me.

The girls arose from breakfast, 

Their rooms Avere up on high, 
And gazing at the stairway, 
They all begin to sigh, 
"O, for an ^L!' 
O, for an ' L ! ' " 



And as they marched on skyward, 
They still kept up the moan : 
Deeper still and deeper 

Till it became a groan, 
" O, for an ' L ! ' 
O, for an ' L ! '" 



Then glancing at the laundry bags 
Heaped up there on the floor, 
Each groaned, " Were I but one of these, 
Then I would sigh no more, 
"O, foran'L!' 
O, for an 'L!' 
O, for an Elevator ! "

QJpio's /^ESS/\GE. 



One morning came a telegram full urgent 
To archer Cupid, lounging still in bed. 
His careful mother, Venus read it over 
And this is what the love-lorn sender said : — 

I know a maiden, dainty and entrancing 
Whose little hand I fain would call my own, 
And yet, O Cupid, I have not the courage, 
By one poor word to let my love be known. 

Come then, tell her, Cupid, that I love her, 
That she is more than all the world to me ; 
Point at her heart your keenest, surest arrow. 
And Cupid dear, your aim must perfect be. 

If in this mission you should prove successful, 
A rich gift to your shrine I '11 gladly give. 
Of course you will be present at our wedding. 
And afterwards forever with us live. 

But Cupid frowning said in scornful accents: — 
" My arrows now have lost their power to wound. 
Just let this fellow tell the maid he 's wealthy. 
His lineage high; she '11 yielding then be found.'

Sweet Sixteen; — Girls of your age do not wear trains. 

Ruth : — Crackers more than once a day are injurious to the best complexions. 

Jlfae : — Although you possess great physical strength I cannot recommend its cultivation by 
extermination of your weaker sisters in your striving to be first at the mail-boxes. 

Meritta : — I cannot recommend any particular hair restorer as no address can be given in these 
columns. 

Lemoe : — No need to be afraid of speaking before members of " The Board." They don't put 
in print alt they know. 

Lasell Girl: — A Rhetorical question does not require an answer. Some people often think it 
does, but they are greatly mistaken. 

Mabel : — Fifteen and twenty-five have never as yet been considered even numbers.

^ ^ODEST Qpi[MIO[Nl. 



Some girls there were and a book they made, 

(Even as you and I.) 
With verses and pictures and many a die 
Some called it a fizzle with many a sigh. 
But the girls they called it their " Allerlei." 

(Even as you and I.) 
Oh! the weeks they wasted, and the tears they wasted, 
And the work of hand and head ! 
The woe of the class who did not know ! 
And now we know they never could know 
And never could understand.
